I think it will be useful to see what we can see from the Drupal admin side.
Once you're in, could you set my user as an admin?  (username "dave-brondsema"
id 241648) Then I can start the process of looking around in there.

I see two forwarded from Martin Groenescheij.  They seem to be end-user issues.
I am able to access and download the template files just fine.  (Sorting &
filtering does have some small usability issues)

An email from Feb 22 reports the problem, but without enough details.

One from Feb 22, mentions a "cBrainpower1.3" template. On there is a link to
which has an error message, so that's one I can check in the admin area or database.
